Schneck Primary Care receives recognition


Schneck Primary Care has received Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance for its efforts to provide patients with a personalized and highly coordinated health care experience.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home,” said Eric Fish, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Schneck Medical Center in Seymour. “As an organization, we consistently work to provide a high standard of care in a patient-centered and compassionate environment close to home.”

The Patient-Centered Medical Home model is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into patient-friendly medical care.

Medical homes can lead to higher quality care and lower costs and improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care, encouraging patients to become more active participants in their health care, according to a news release from Schneck.

“The PCMH recognition is another example of our efforts to develop a long-term personal relationship with each patient while providing high-quality medical care,” Fish said. “Stronger doctor/patient engagement, better access to appointments, proactive intervention and careful management of chronic conditions are some of the cornerstones of PCMH that we have embraced during this quality improvement process.”
